OK, I'm from Boston. And all the time I lived in Philly, I never got the cheesesteak thing. They're OK, but sub nirvana, no. However, my husband fell in love with the chicken version. Basically the same thing as a cheesesteak but with chicken bits (chopped, sauteed on grill) instead of steak.
Is there anywhere around here to satisfy his craving? Honestly, I just don't get it - both versions are so ordinary and uninteresting to me. But he misses them passionately, so whatever, I love the man, I'll try to track them down. But give me a good lobstah roll any day.
